Top 5 things to see on a Rome bus tour

From hop on hop off bus tours around the Eternal City, to small coach excursions, to the more far-flung sights, here are some of the best things you can do on a bus tour around Rome.

Colosseum

Colosseum

Marvel at Rome's famous Colosseum as well as other nearby attractions. While in the area, your bus will also pass the Roman Forum and the Arch of Constantine!

Appian Way

Appian Way

This historically strategic road – along which Spartacus' army was crucified – dates back to 312 BC. Bus tours can help discover ancient aqueducts and the Tomb of Cecilia Metella.

St. Peter's Basilica

St. Peter's Basilica

The largest church in the world is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Supposedly, it was built over the burial place of St. Peter, the apostle and first Pope of Rome.

Catacombs of Rome

Catacombs of Rome

Rome has no less than 40 mass tombs buried beneath its suburbs. The best way to visit the Catacombs is as part of a bus tour that includes stops for exploring!

Piazza Venezia

Piazza Venezia

The name of this huge piazza derives from the square's Venetian Palace. However, it'll be the National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II that catches your eye!

Planning Your Visit

What time of day to go?

If you plan on booking a bus tour that allows stops to alight and explore – whether within the city or outside of its limits – it's best to leave as early as possible to avoid crowds and traffic. However, if you're merely after great views from your window seat, why not tour the city by night, when many of its monuments will be spectacularly lit?

How much does it cost?

Prices for Rome bus tour tickets start at €10 for a basic hop-on hop-off package, to over €100 for small-group tours that include attraction tickets and/or meals.

What people are saying about Rome

My first visit abroad-and so,so 'worth it'!

This was an amazing tour and just what I had hoped for. I have pain/difficulty walking and stair-climbing but managed - worthwhile! Our Guide, Leonardo, was super, a lovely chap and so enthusiastic and helpful (he could also tell us on the mini-bus about the food of Italy. As this was my very first visit (and would now be encouraged to return!) it was a lovely wee respite from the ancient Catacombs. For myself, the two small bus journeys across the busy streets between venues was a pleasant little 'break'. In all - GREAT. And thanks to all, Heather.

Rome: Catacombs and Crypts Small Group Minibus Tour Reviewed by Heather Oonah, 10/20/2019

We booked the 9:00am shuttle but was combined with the 9:30am people~

Not happy about the way we have to wait for the next bus; obviously our bus was not “broken” as we were told, because we were able to get on the bus at 8:50am but waited on the bus for more customers to show up from other shops or something~ We didn’t leave until 9:30, plus the traffic; it took us 2 hours to get into Rome Termini station instead of 1 hour as advertised. This is not good if I had a tighter schedule then I will be in big trouble.

Convenient way of travelling to the airport at a minimum cost.

Good way of transferring to the airport but allow plenty of time and pre book as very busy. The total journey time from Roma Termini was over an hour due to the Rome traffic and three further pick up stops before setting off to the airport. Comfortable trip and a bonus of seeing Rome again as you travelled out.

It was an easy and simple way to reach Rome city center.

I had a 7hr layover in Rome and I was able to quickly book the tickets and find the bus stop based on the details message. I was able to get off near the Vatican City and then walk through the city to the main station. I then borded back on the bus to return to the Airport. It was perfect.

Great excursion! Never realized what’s under Rome!

I went into this excursion not understanding at all what the catacombs were. Once the story unfolded it was less of a fear. History will always be history but to see it live changed my thoughts and opinions on seeing bones.
